to the united states. >> unless he makes it clear that he's behind kerry, they won't take kerry seriously. >> rose: why is that hard to do? >> because i think, because the president, we'll see but i think the president has basically decided the middle east is a place he wants to turn his back on. he wants to focus on the greener pastures of asia. >> i would say if i may that the risk is not just domestic, it's global. because of the linkage, if you fail in the middle east it resonates in north korea and vice versa. so the risk is broader than just the domestic price to be paid. >> rose: we continue this evening with a look at the frontier of medicine and how information, data is being used to understand illness and to provide us with an early warning. we talk with jeffrey hammerbacher, he is chief scientist at cloudera. >> and we went through a period in which data generation seemed to grow exponentially and that lead to the requirement to build software that could then collect and analyze that data. so if you look at the world wide web, all of a sudden we were taking all the documents, a
: secretary of state john kerry met with afghan president hamid karzai today, and said the two nations are "on the same page" about making peace with the taliban. good evening. i'm gwen ifill. >> woodruff: and i'm judy woodruff. on the newshour tonight, we assess the challenges ahead for kerry and the u.s., winding down the war in afghanistan and dealing with tensions in iraq, syria, and the middle east. >> ifill: then, we update the movement on immigration reform, as president obama uses a citizenship ceremony to prod congress to send him a bill.
, thanks so much. zain asher there. >>> secretary of state john kerry dropping in to meet with president hamid karzai. announcement coming at a time of tension as you can imagine between president karzai and coalition forces and u.s. forces in afghanistan. >> those tensions escalated this month after a bomb blast in kabul that killed nine people, kerry and president karzai just wrapping up a news conference actually. we'll update you on any developments from that. >>> also in afghanistan today another sign that u.s. involvement there is now winding down. the united states handed over full control of a prison near bagram air base to afghan authority. >> the transfer announced a year ago was supposed to take place within six months, but tensions with president karzai and concerns about how afghanistan would handle certain prisoners delayed the handover until now. >> and cbs is now apologizing to veterans who objected to a scene, this is from the reality show "the amazing race." this episode here was shot in vietnam. contesnts there were sent to the hanoi memorial to find a clue they needed
kerry, the israelis, mahmoud abbas, are going to try to operate. but as barack obama knows, no president ever lost money betting against this issue and he may not, either. >> and then there's iran, to say nothing of complicated problems. it's very clear from the president's signals in recent days and his interview with israeli television, there's a different notion in the united states. we saw this in the threat assessment testimony last week from the intelligence community. the intelligence community here believes that there's a year at least a year before iran is closing that window of vulnerability. the danger point, the red zone. israel has a very different sense of where the red doan starts and when. >> i think when you look at what the president said, he said a year from iran making a decision to pursue, to break out, they could have a bomb. that's a complicated process that involves enrichment, weaponization, a number of processes to get them to a place where they could deliver a nuclear payload. the u.s. and israel have the exact same sets of data about iran's nuclear program. ar
. they know that this isn't the beginning, but they do think that secretary kerry is coming back here at the end of the week to try to lay the groundwork with benjamin netanyahu and israel to start some talks. president obama is here to, as he said, listen. he said in the press conference yesterday that his main role in this visit is to just listen to the palestinians. it's a lesson he learned from his mom, he said, because the palestinian palestinians often feel that they are not heard. and so he really wants to see what kind of mood there is now and what it would take to really prod some sort of discussion to come into action. and, you know, they felt a little bit neglected and it's the president's time to remind him that even though he has been working very closely with the israelis, he has not forgotten that he wants to create some sort of open space for peace talks to come into fruition with secretary kerry now at the state department. >> very interesting you bring up secretary kerry. a second ago, jess, we saw president obama greeting secretary of state john kerry on the tarmac
.com and click on hot topics. >>> secretary of state john kerry makes a surprise trip to baghdad. kerry has been meeting with the leaders with other middle eastern nations. earlier he traveled to saudi arabia and egypt. last week he accompanied president obama to egypt. this is kerry's first trip to iraq after becoming secretary of state. >>> pope francis celebrated his first palm sunday mass in st. peters square. he road in a modified pope mobile. there was no class casing protecting him. 250,000 people gathered for the mass. the pope urged them to be humble and young at heart. he kept his spontaneous style and broke away several time from his prepared text he urged folks to lead simple yet productive lives. clergy and pilgrims palm and a live branches during that. >> today is the first sunday of spring. just a beautiful day out there. let's turn to rosemagoing to se a near repeat. even slightly warmer for some of our inland locations. tonight a little bit of a transition. first things first outside our door this morning it's a cool one once again giving you a live look there over the east bay
as well. could this be obama helping to set up secretary of state john kerry for what you talk about is the larger issue of peace negotiations down the line? >> yes, and i believe secretary kerry is very committed to a middle east peace process. i think it's long overdue. and i think the president's got to give him the political cover that secretary kerry would need. and key is going to be the israeli public. and the relationship with president netanyahu. you know you what say candid or business-like in diplomacy, it means that it's not a perfect relationship. but, you know, a lot of leaders, they develop this relationship. a better relationship, over time, and i think that's what the president is doing. >> so as long as the business relationship can produce positive business results it's a good thing. let's talk about iran. the nuclear issue that's a top issue for president obama's agenda. on friday, defense secretary chuck hagel said there are these plans to beef up missiles after north korea said it was going to be trying to have its preemptive nuclear strike against the u.s. or l
meeting over the weekend with the u.s. secretary of state john kerry returns. he will meet with prime minister netanyahu saturday night and more substantive issues about the peace process may emerge in that particular meeting. but for the next two days, the talks between obama and the 10 yahoo will center on what are seen as shared fears, shared interest -- talk between obama fearstanyahu, on shared -- iran developing a nuclear weapon and a situation in syria which is seen very much as a threat to stability. these will be the issues that will dominate the discussion. is a the studio with me senior political analyst. mike was sending the main ground that these two leaders want to syria.ill be iran and there is a difference in opinion as to how imminent a threat iran and its nuclear program is. are they going to be able to find common ground here? >> yes, it is about how imminent in the threat, and even more important, how to deal with it. president obama insists it will be america that will call the shots on iran and not israel. that is a row, even if it has the right to act on its own
that they are ready to go back to the table and secretary kerry can pick it up from there. >> do you think there will be disappointed when president obama goes there tomorrow without a public plan? >> i think the palestinians are already disappointed in president obama. he promised them a palestinian state for years ago in cairo. nothing has happened on that front. of course, he blames the palestinians as much as the israelis for that. what is critical here is for them to reinvest in this president. there is no other way to achieve an independent palestinian state other than through the ages of aegisrican president -- of the american presidents working through the situation. he needs to give the american president reason to work on netanyahu for the two states that they talked about today. >> thank you. and one more topic from today's press conference. president obama said the u.s. is investigating whether chemical weapons have been deployed in syria. thee are claims by government that rebel forces were behind the attack. the syrian government and rebels have accused each other of using ch
john kerry will stay a couple of days here and likely return very soon to start lay down the foundation. not for talks next week or next month but can they get these leaders to say and do the right thing? perhaps -- put a capital p on that perhaps, get them back to the negotiating table. there are so many difficult issues. >> we're about two minutes away from this press availability or speech we'll see from the two leaders. the reuters headline basically said after backslapping in israel, the president faces discontent on the second day of his trip. that pretty much sums it up. >> reporter: it does sum it up. it's hard because he needs to essentially try to help president abbas. the israeli government will tell you if they are going to make peace, president abbas is the one person they trust. he is aging. he has a fractured palestinian leadership. hamas is essentially sending the message to him we might not support you. be careful. plus the president of the yunitd states labels hamas a terrorist group. united states government before and after obama will likely claim hamas a terrorist g

once congress gets back into town. thanks so much, brianna. >>> secretary of state john kerry hit the ground running and sure has not stopped since. he made a surprise visit to afghanistan today and met with president hamid karzai as a u.s.-run prison was handed over to the afghans. over the weekend, kerry was in iraq looking for help in stopping iranian arms shipment to syria. before that, he joined president obama on a trip to israel, the west bank and jordan. >>> up next, congresswoman michele bachmann is quick to criticize spending by political rivals but now her own campaign faces an aethics investigation. >>> also, after featuring an anti-american memorial in vietnam during "the amazing race," cbs is apologizing to american veterans. ew 15 under $! oh my goodness... oh my gosh, this looks amazing... [ male announcer ] 15 entrees under $15! it's our new maine stays! seafood, chicken, and more! ooh! the tilapia with roasted vegetables. i'm actually looking at the wood grilled chicken with portobello wine sauce. that pork chop was great. no more fast food friday's. we're going
that there is possibly going to be some movement because we're hearing that kerry is coming back here on saturday to sit with netanyahu to see how they can push forward this peace process between israel and the palestinians. the palestinians looking at this saying, look, we don't think anything is going to move forward. they really hope that something will happen. but there hasn't been any high expectations here. >> sarah sidener, thank you. >>> and now syria. the assad regime and rebel forces are accusing one another of using chemical weapons. syrian state media reported that rebel forces launched a chemical attack killing at least two dozen people, injuring more than 100 people. rebels deny that charge vehemently and accuse regime forces of shelling a town near damascus with chemical rockets. our senior international reporter is in amman, jordan, this morning. i know there are a lot of questions to substantiating the claims. what do we know so far? >> reporter: most of the information is coming from syrian state tv. and that's claiming that at least 25 people were killed in some kind of an attack in a
to the palestinian people. i hope that your visit him along with the visit of the secretary of state kerry help us turn a page in relations with the palestinians. let us sit down at the negotiating table. let us work together to achieve the historic compromise that will end our conflict once and for all. let me conclude on a personal note. i know how valuable the time and energy is of the american president, yourself. this is the 10th time we have met since you became president and since i became prime minister. you have chosen israel is your fort and then you -- venue your foreign visit and your second term. thank you for the investment you have made in our relationship and in strengthening that friendship and alliance between our two countries. it is deeply appreciated. you have come here on the eve of passover. i've always considered it it as our most cherished holiday. it celebrates the jewish passage from slavery to freedom. has alsohe ages, it inspired people struggling for freedom, including the founding fathers of the united states. it is a profound honor to host you, the leader of the fre
to senator kerry and i know we have a group heading off to poland on monday to talk about this further. i applaud it as i mentioned. i do hope we will focus on a base on the eastern side with radar facilities. and i think the question is, chris, how does the nondeplowment of the fourth phase of our european based issues it temperature affect us over time. there is technical issues we will be getting into this week with the the pentagon and the state department but certainly i think most all of us applaud the efforts to beef up our missile defense on the west coast chris do you think that kim young unand the north koreans are a threat to the u.s. >> i don't think they have the mechanism to really harm us. i think it puts us in a different place as it relates to negotiating with them. at the end of the day, chris, i know there is a lot of talk, six party talks, all kind of things that are occurring. all of us understand the key to this is going to be china. they are the ones that can affect the behavior of north korea because of the trade issues and certainly support issues coming from chin
: ford's boss, secretary of state john kerry met with the russian foreign minister to press the kremlin to cease delivery of weapons systems but the ongoing conversation has not led moscow to change. the option of the u.s. arming syrian rebels remains under discussion. one other interesting note, influential republican congresswoman, layton, of florida says we can't guarantee the weapons wouldn't fall into the hand of extremists. >> on wall street, our 401(k)'s are having a nice time. we're up 57 on the session thus far. above 14,500. traders reacting to the word the federal reserve will take more steps to boost the economy through the program of buying up $85 billion in treasury and mortgage bonds. but the trouble in cyprus could threaten markets. officials are trying to find a new way to keep their own economy afloat after the parliament rejected a bailout that would have taxed its own citizens' bank accounts. the banks are closed the rest of the week. >>> where are we with this situation? >> in a standstill when it comes to cyprus. the parliament is betting the european union and cen
. the obvious question remains, what more should or can we do? secretary kerry says providing direct humanitarian aid is a positive step. the syrian people need to know that they have this the support of the united states. the european allies led by france and great britain are considering ways to provide legal assistance to the opposition. the argument for arming the opposition will shift the balance of power. what are the chances of a success if we do not provide assistance? onlyassad falls and it is a question of when, we need to ensure that our own security interest will be protected. this means a promise many new government that any powerful weapon will be secured and destroyed. tois our response ability determine whether this can be done that ensures arms will not fall into terrorist organizations. i'm encouraged the syrian opposition chose the prime minister for exile yesterday. time is of the essence. there are difficult decisions that must be made in the days and weeks ahead. we continue to push for un security council resolution. do we provide military advisers and training
in the flotilla incident. on the ground right now, secretary of state john kerry has stayed behind to see if he can turn good words into good deeds between the israelis and palestinians. he's here trying to get the israelis and palestinians to agree on terms to negotiate about how they're going to negotiate, but even still people here aren't very optimistic that the secretary of state is going to have any success, at least in the short-term, at getting everybody back to the bargaining table. back to you. >> heather: leeland vittert, thank you. >> rick: for a lot of people, thoughts of wolves might conjure images of fairy tale villains. for others they trigger a real sense of fear. >> heather: so how did they get this big bad reputation and more importantly, do they deserve it? a pair of researchers actually lived alongside a wolf pack and they were the subject of a recent documentary. >> the pack they studied proved far different from the demons of ancient myths. rather, they were animals devoted to one another, capable of affection and bonds resembling those of human families. >> heather: you
things that whether i it is targeting her is in vote kerry or cyprus or flying a drone over southern israel last fall. even explicitly against lebanese interest. that makes hezbollah very, very dangers. why are some european countries on inclined to designate hezbollah for a friday of reasons from concern about what might happen to the soldiers, many of them aren't european, italian or french in particular in southern lebanon to assistance to the stability of lebanon which is politically quite unstable to concern about retaliatory attack settle. there are answers to all those questions. is no evidence that hezbollah has ever retaliated with attacks against the entity that is designated it. let's be honest, designation is calling it the name, calling blowing things up is terrorism. took over downtown beirut by forcibly into the death of fellow lebanese. has been accused by the special tribunal with the assassination of other political assassinations. and, of course, now it's having in syria, which is going right across the border into lebanon. we have to be, and i assure you that u.s.
and secretary of state kerry look to revive the peace process, they will not be making a stop in gaza. but this is another piece of the peace process puzzle that so far no one has solved. there is little chance for lasting peace if gaza's future generations can't imagine a world without war. >> sara joins us live from jerusalem. there's obviously a lot of frustration over the lack of progress what we could loosely call the peace process. as you well know, the west bank and gaza are really two different palestinian entities in terms of society. i'm curious how it's playing out the visit of the president in gaza versus the west bank. >> look, the people in gaza feel very much ignored. and they didn't think that they were going to get anything out of this trip as it is. and they didn't. they felt like, again, the president was really surely backing israel. and you know that there are several groups that really feel there should not be an israeli state, that this land was stolen from them and that's their stance. and that is one of the reasons why you see they believe they are still in a
now with reaction, former aide to senator john kerry. adjunct professor mark hannan and radio talk, our good friend dennis is back. obama flipped and flopped and flipped. he was for gay marriage and then against gay marriage when running for president and now he's for gay marriage now that he got elected again. is that political expediency or just having trouble with the issue? >> i think you think it's political expediency. >> sean: yeah, obvious. >> let me quote winston churchill if i might. >> sean: i love when liberals quote churchill. >> let me hear the quote. >> said if you don't have the ability to change your mind, are you sure you still have one. look the fact of the matter is-- >> change your mind for, against, and for again. >> hillary clinton is coming out and disingenuous, but the fact of the matter is republican governor of ohio did this days earlier the rnc put out a report saying we need to quote, unquote, evolve and party of stoogy old white men-- >> i know you want to turn this into a republican issue. when obama does it at one point he has a real position, he's f
home, secretary of state john kerry is remaining in the region. he has a pair of meetings today, one of them with the palestinian president mahmoud abbas. that's taking place in jordan. another one that will take place over dinner with the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu of israel. just another signal of just how important this issue is to the administration as they're showing once again their commitment to try to revive these peace talks. alex? >> all right, peter, thank you so much. >>> here at home the senate passed its first budget in four years, this during an all-night session. the nonbinding blueprint passed by a near party line vote. before its passage the senate spent several hours taking up dozens of amendments. >> average voteorama, 35 amendments. we've done 70, twice as many. doing this has been a herculean feat. >> i know everyone is exhausted and you may not feel it at the moment, but this is one of the senate's finest days in recent years and i commend everyone who has participated in this extraordinary debate. >> some of the amendments had nothing to do with the bu
industry and he reportedly now wants secretary of state kerry involved to help negotiate terms with these foreign companies for protections that he says would be similar to the airline passenger bill of rights and would penalize cruise lines anytime passengers are denied toilets or power and guaranty refunds for last-minute cancellations. we've seen some passengers from the carnival triumph which was towed into mobile, alabama, last month file federal lawsuits against carnival but others who have disembarked disabled carnival ships recently were less upset. >> we had a slight disruption in elevator service. we had a slight disruption in the flushing of toilets which wasn't a problem. it was a very short time period. they took excellent care of us and made sure we all have flights home. >> they gave us credit and 50% off to travel with them again and we will. >> vacation, you have to take it like it is. people are too serious and get upset. >> reporter: senator schumer says he wants the cruise lines to eventually adopt the passenger bill of rights themselves. jenna. jenna: we'll
john kerry noted ,-com,-com ma therefore we are working with our partners to strengthen the opposition on the ground. reporter: russia continues to look at the concerns. jon: thank you. speak to the growing concerns of the nation of cyprus. the government elected to come up with a plan be after the parliament levied a tax of up to 10% on anyone who had any bank deposits. now the question is whether they going to do. this is important for us and of course, that can affect our 401k. but that dow average just hit a record high. greg is following the story from london. reporter: that's right, folks today are scrambling to come up with a new way from dragging all of your done with it. they voted down a plan that would see big bites taken out of private bank accounts. again, there has to be a way to get this country out of the way. one way to do it is lax banking regulations. moscow has a stake in all this. officials are reportedly looking for a big loan. back in, with strings like energy and getting rights for the people. the banks are worrying that people. we are told that it could be clos
that at least for some time. secretary of state kerry will stay behind. everybody believes if you tried to force the parties back to the table tomorrow, it would be counterproductive. you have to do some preliminary work first. so let's check back in two weeks, maybe two months. if there's no peace process in a month or two, carol, you could say the president failed, at least in the short-term. but don't expect something by tomorrow or in the very near future. >> i don't think anyone does, john. you don't have to worry about that. thank you so much, john king, reporting live from june. >>> politics/entertainment. yes, politics can be very, very funny. we all got a fresh dose of sarah palin last week when she took center stage at the conservative political action conference. now we're getting another dose of tina fey. >> same-sex marriage, what is your view on that, please? >> well, the bible says it's gross. and i don't judge it. a lot of the amazing, wonderful people i met in the audience at "dancing with the stars" seem to go that way. but, no. >> no? no same-sex marriage? >> mm-mm. marriage i
kerry intends to spend significant time, effort and energy in trying to bring about a closing of the gap between the parties. we can not give up on the search for peace. too much is at stake. and if we're gonna succeed, part of what we're going to have to do is to get out of some of the formulas and habits that have blocked progress for so long. both sides are going to have to think anew. those of us in the united states are going to have to think anew. but i'm confident that we can arrive at our destination to advance the vision of two nations, two neighbors, at peace, israel and palestine. if given the chance, one thing that i'm very certain of is that the palestinians have the talent, the drive, and the courage to succeed in their own state. i think of the villages that hold peaceful protests because they understand the moral force of nonviolence. i think of the importance that palestinian families place on education. i think of the entrepreneurs determined to create something new, like the young palestinian woman i met at the entrepreneurship summit that i hosted who wants to build r
of state john kerry will remain at least a little bit trying to maybe get this israeli/palestinian peace process off the ground. >> jump-start it. >> he has some political issues he has to deal with, major issues here. how much of a subject of importance will this be for the president? >> look, i think this has been very good for the president because there were lots of people in the american jewish community, particularly during this last election, who saw benjamin netanyahu cozying up to mitt romney, who were very skeptical about the president and israel. i think this trip as john king was saying earlier makes it very clear particularly when the president on the question of iran said all options are on the table, period, the president made it very clear as he said in his speech today, you are not alone. so i think domestically, politically, this trip is only good for the president. it makes him be seen as a leader. next to benjamin netanyahu these two men need each other in many ways right now and i think that is why you see this relationship blossoming. >> richard haas do you think an
. the john kerry the new secretary of state wants to see what is is possible. he wants therefore to try to set the groundwork for it. he is doing that with this speech. i think the facts on the ground are so difficulty to overcome, the suspicions are so difficult to overcome i depth see it happening. jon: as virtually every american president found in recent memory. >> yes. jon: paul gigot, thank you. you can catch paul this weekend when he hosts the "journal editorial report" tomorrow 2:00 p.m. eastern time here on fox news channel. uma: right now folks in one city are dropping sandbags, trying to get ahead of what could be a devastating flood. how they're preparing for the worst in fargo and will it be enough? >>> now could be your chance to take home a piece of space history believe it or not but it's going to cost you. we'll bring you those details next. jon: right now, bitters are getting amped up hoping to take a home a piece of space history. hundreds of items go up for auction ad the sale is expected to rake in big bucks. david lee miller has details from our new york city newsr
